Helen Frankenthaler was not heavily influenced by any one culture or heritage, despite her strong family background in Germanic and Jewish culture. Her paintings are individual in style and meaning, and she developed an unconscious attitude that culture was not foreign or exotic, but just one part of who she was.

Helen Frankenthaler is one of the foremost practitioners of the Abstract Expressionist style of painting. Highly influenced by Jackson Pollock, she changed her entire method of painting after watching him lay his unstretched canvases on the floor. This revolutionary approach to painting appealed to Frankenthaler, and she has taken this process one step further.
